Four years ago my dear friend Patricia was in stage four kidney failure. She began dialysis three times per week. After three 1/2 years her body was wearing out. I first opened my mind and heart to the possibility of donating my kidney . Last year about this time we began our journey. After several months of medical testing we were cleared for surgery. On June 16, 2016 I donated my kidney and my dear friend is now enjoying life again. On the day of the surgery she presented me with my Open Heart necklace! A perfect gift! Love it!
